      The trails in Kenna Cartwright Nature Park are the perfect example of Kamloops flow and easy going fun. This is all about cross country riding through pine trees and sagebrush on completely buffed trails that means your fitness level and enthusiasm are the only limits. The trails are multi use for walkers, hikers, runners, and bikers, and receive heavy use especially during peak times early afternoon/evenings and weekends. Please ride in control, watch out for dogs, and bring your own water and poo bags for your own 4 legged riding buddies.

      The trails in this park are draped over and around a hilltop that overlooks all but the highest parts of the city so there are tons of opportunities and routes to get your sweat on and then cruise along sidehills or float back down to the trailheads and parking lots. Nothing technical or worrying in this park, and all the trails are well marked at intersections, with maps on sign boards at the 3 major entrances to the park. Paper maps you can bring with you are often available at the trailheads (as supplies last.)
